Join me and the Small Business Administration for National Small Business Week from April 28 – May 4, 2024. This is our nation’s celebration of the 33.5 million small businesses across the country. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and this is our week to shine as entrepreneurs, employers, and innovative startups. The last few years have seen unprecedented growth of entrepreneurship in the United States, marked by 16 million new business applications since the Biden-Harris Administration took office. This surge highlights the dynamism and innovation that America’s entrepreneurs bring to our local communities. The SBA champions the endeavors of small businesses and the vital role they play in driving economic prosperity across the nation.  National Small Business Week holds unique significance as the government honors entrepreneurs who create jobs, strengthen their neighborhoods, and solve global problems. The SBA also gives out business awards during week-long celebration.

National Small Business Week also includes a free, educational Virtual Summit from April 30 – May 1.
